In den 21 Hallen, in denen die Fruit Logistica stattfand, schien an den drei Messetagen die ganze nationale und internationale Fruchtbranche auf den Beinen zu sein. Mit rund 70.000 Fachbesuchern aus mehr als 130 Ländern war diese Weltmesse in Berlin sehr gut besucht.
Some of the world’s best oranges grow at the foot of the Mt Etna volcano on Sicily. Tarocco, Moro and Navel are the varieties. The volcano, which is the tallest active volcano in Europe, provides a fertile soil and special microclimate which is particularly good for the fruits.
Our colleague Marnie Kathem has been travelling around the Ivory Coast since last December. Here she visited Ivoire Organics, a cooperative of farmers and employees, to carry out diverse tasks for example various field tests, soil analyses and training courses.
In November we visited Argentina and Chile to talk to our organic trade partners here. We get organic kiwi, garlic, pumpkins, plums, apples as well as pears from them. Ronald Vianen, the manager of our Dutch BioTropic branch as well as his colleague Joep van Koevorden, visited the area. Here they not only discussed the predicted harvest forecasts, planned delivery quantities or prices for the next season but also worked on developing a very good personal business relationship.
